ST. LOUIS -- Paul Stastny may have gotten most of the attention this offseason as the sure thing to improve the Blues' depth at center, but Jori Lehtera will be the group's most intriguing X-factor.
His long-awaited NHL debut brings plenty of promise, considering all the success the 26-year-old from Finland had in the KHL the last four seasons. Lehtera had 44 points in 48...
ST. LOUIS - The Blues have invited unrestricted free agent forward Paul Bissonnette to a tryout at training camp.
Bissonnette, 29, has played in 202 career NHL games, registering seven goals and 15 assists (22 points). He has a plus-7 rating and 340 career penalty minutes.
Bissonnette spent the past five seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes. He made his NHL debut with the Pittsburgh...
The St. Louis Blues ended the 2013-2014 season almost exactly like they had the previous two seasons. They lost in the first round again, although this time it was the Chicago Blackhawks that showed us the playoff door, instead of the Los Angeles Kings which had done so the previous two seasons. After the Blues lost again, I must admit I kind of went into a hockey hibernation....
As fans dissect Jori Lehtera’s skill on the ice and eagerly try to predict what he will bring to the table for the St. Louis Blues, the Finnish forward is quietly adjusting to life in St. Louis. In an interview seen on the team’s website, Lehtera revealed what he’s enjoying about in St. Louis as well as one other interesting piece of information.
In regards to St. Louis grocery...
In addition to goaltending, the Blues’ Jake Allen and Brian Elliott share another passion. They are both avid fishermen.
A week ago, after working on the ice together at a camp in Madison, Wis., Allen and Elliott set out for an afternoon of casting on the lake. Then on Sunday, after arriving in St. Louis, Elliott took Allen to see his first live NFL game, between the Rams and Vikings...
ST. LOUIS -- Expectations are as high as ever for the Blues heading into the start of training camp next Thursday.
If coming up six points short of the Presidents' Trophy despite a miserable finish in 2013-14 wasn't enough, St. Louis clearly established itself as a Stanley Cup contender with some key signings this offseason. But that doesn't guarantee smooth sailing when...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
Blues forward Jaden Schwartz, 22, is a restricted free agent coming off his entry-level deal and remains unsigned.
Because Schwartz has played only two NHL seasons (which includes the lockout-shortened year) and doesn't have arbitration rights, obviously there's only so much he can ask for.
While neither side in the negotiation wanted...
What happens when Brian Elliott takes over the official Twitter account of the St. Louis Blues? Fans found out as Elliott posted updates from his workout and the end result was hilarious. The best Tweet was probably Elliott’s impression of Ken Hitchcock.

You can hang onto those St. Louis Blues hats a little longer, Alaska Aces fans.
Blues general manager Doug Armstrong and Aces managing partner Terry Parks announced Tuesday the two teams have agreed on a one-year deal to make the Aces the Blues' East Coast Hockey League affiliate.
This isn't the first time the organizations have partnered up, as the two were tied together...
With training camp still a few weeks away, the St. Louis Blues felt it was a good time to reveal their new jerseys that they will wear in the upcoming 2014-2015 season. Is it called a jersey or a sweater? That’s an argument for another time, but the new jerseys that the Blues will be wearing are not all that new. The jerseys aren’t exactly the same as ones in the past but they...

On July 1, the opening day of free agency in the NHL, the Blues made a surprise signing.
No, not Paul Stastny, perhaps the most sought-after player in the pool, whom the Blues did rein in with a four-year, $28 million contract. Stastny wasn’t necessarily a surprise, though, because the Blues’ interest was clear and the center had kept the club atop his list.
The signing that...
What are the odds that either Peter Mueller or Joakim Lindstrom will make the NHL team after training camp? According to Jeremy Rutherford, the odds are pretty good and people may be underestimating how much time Mueller may see at the NHL level.
Here’s how JR responded to the question regarding Mueller’s playing time in 2014-15:
“I would say pretty good. The scuttlebutt is...

Ryan Reaves feels a certain way about EA Sports NHL 15.
St. Louis Blues right winger Ryan Reaves is biracial which is pretty apparent from the picture above.
So Reaves, of light brown complexion, more than likely wants to know why he looks like Wesley Snipes in the upcoming NHL 15 game.
